Back in middle school, my friends and I loved going to Taco Bell for a few tacos or a burrito. My favorite item on the menu was the Cheesey Gordita Crunch. Not only did the name sound appetizing and manly, but the taste was excellent. From the soft gordita on the outside, to the crunchy taco on the inside, it had the taste and texture to make me quite a happy camper. I didn’t care about the high calories or how bad this taco was for me; I wanted my stomach to feel the sweet satisfaction.
Today, I still crave some of the things I ate growing up as a teenager. I may have grown out of those habits of eating whatever tastes good, but I still am tempted by Taco Bell. If I’m this tempted, what about the rest of our country? Obesity is such a problem in America, other people must be tempted by Taco Bell and giving in even more than I do. Considering the taste, proportions, price, and convenient locations, Taco Bell might be a regular place to have lunch for some people . Changing bad habits like these can be difficult at times of economic struggle and when people need to grab food then go. So, what’s the solution? We need quick, convenient, affordable and delicious meal options that don’t have the horrible ingredients and portions of the traditional fast food joints.
